fz570628"The Old Heidelberg Bridge in Germany is a stone bridge, also known as the Tie Oude Bridge, which was built in 1786 AD and has a history of more than 200 years. The Old Heidelberg Bridge has nine arches and is the first stone arch bridge across the Neckar (one of the three tributaries of the Rhine). The bridgehead has two round towers and both are made of solid stones. The bridge is only used for walking by tourists and pedestrians, and the bridge surface is somewhat worn."
juki235"The Philosopher’s Trail appears and disappears from time to time along the old town and castle of Heidelberg on the opposite side of the undulating hills. The mountain trails may sometimes be closed due to poor road conditions, so check the bulletin board at the intersection, otherwise you may go wrong."
suifeng2019"A Neckar River flows slowly through the entire old city. One side of the river bank is a typical European medieval city scenery, and the other side is a continuous but not high mountain peak. The majestic Heidelberg Castle stands on the top of the mountain."

Heidelberg, city, Baden-Württemberg Land (state), southwestern Germany. The city lies on the canalized Neckar River where it emerges from the forested hills of Odenwald into the Rhine plain. It was first mentioned in 1196 and was the capital of the Rhenish Palatinate (Pfalz) and the residence of the electoral counts palatine until 1720. It was devastated in 1622 during the Thirty Years’ War and almost completely destroyed by the French in 1689 and 1693, so most of its important buildings are in the Baroque architectural style (which prevailed until the late 18th century) rather than Gothic medieval. It passed to Baden in 1802 and experienced considerable growth in the 20th century.
The University of Heidelberg (Ruprecht-Karl-Universität), the oldest higher educational institution in Germany, was founded by Rupert I and chartered by Pope Urban VI in 1386. Its Geological-Paleontological Institute houses the Heidelberg jaw, a fossil jawbone, probably 500,000 years old, that was found in the vicinity in 1907.
University Library, part of the University of Heidelberg.
Heidelberg remains primarily a university and residential city, but it also has developed a significant industrial base. Manufactures include machines, precision instruments, and leather, tobacco, and wood products. The main business, however, is the tourist trade; several million people visit the imposing Heidelberg Castle every year. Although devastated by the French in 1689 and 1693 and then struck by lightning in 1764, this magnificent red sandstone structure, 330 feet (100 metres) above the river, still dominates the city. Construction began in the 13th century, but the most notable work was done in the Renaissance and includes the Otto-Heinrichsbau and Friedrichsbau. In the cellar of the Friedrichsbau is the Heidelberg Tun (1751), an enormous wine cask with a capacity of 49,000 gallons (185,500 litres).

Heidelberg culture student. Located on the Neckar River, it is built of reddish brown sandstone and stands quietly on the green hills of the throne. The castle has been built since the 13th century and it took 400 years to complete. During the construction process, the architectural style of the castle has changed with the changes of European cultural periods, forming a perfect combination of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architectural styles. It is both a city symbol of Heidelberg and a legend in the history of German architecture. Since the 14th century, it has been the official residence of the Palatinate. In the 16th century, voters supported the New Deal reform and participated in the European Thirty Years War. The castle was severely damaged by the French army. After the end of the war, like the "and pro-health" policy in Chinese history, the electorate married his daughter to the Duke of Orleans, the brother of Louis XIV.
The famous Heidelberg Old Bridge. The old bridge was built in 1788 and the official name is Karl-Theodor Bridge, the name of the electorate who built the baroque stone bridge in 1788. This is the ninth bridge in this position since ancient Roman times and the oldest bridge on the Neckar River in Heidelberg.
This bronze monkey statue is not small. It is said that the monkey's left hand mirror and the left foot ring symbolize vanity, the naked hip symbolizes lust and ugliness, and the right hand extends fingers to block people's evil sight. The copper monkey in this position also appeared in the 15th century. At that time, it was a symbol of ugly, shameless, desire and vanity. It was used to satirize the bridge fee and also expressed the meaning of equality among the people inside and outside the bridge. Legend has it that the person who has held the right hand finger of the monkey will return to Heidelberg in the future. Those who have touched the bronze mirror of the left hand of the monkey will have good luck, so at a glance, the bronze mirror has been touched by the pedestrians.
Looking up at Heidelberg Castle on the top of the throne from the old bridge in Heidelberg, it is an extraordinary momentum. The two 28-meter-tall bridgeheads at the southern end of the old bridge are the oldest part of the old bridge. They were built in the 15th century and used as part of the bridge. The bridge gate was originally used to collect the bridge fee.
The first stop in Heidelberg is the Heidelberg Castle on the top of the hill. The castle was built in the 13th century. It was struck twice in 1537 and 1764. It was severely damaged in the Thirty Years' War and the Great League War. It was twice destroyed by the French. The castle owner chose the Emperor family to move to Manhai. M. Some of the abandoned castles were later restored and rebuilt until the end of the 19th century when the main building was restored and used. Up to now, the unrepaired part is still broken, and some rooms in the upper part only have one outer wall. Therefore, this is a beautiful big castle and a ruined castle ruins.
Many people come to Heidelberg. They are all running in this big barrel. Grosses Fass, because of the war, is the fourth barrel of similar size that was built repeatedly in the castle. Today's barrels were built in 1751 and can hold a total of 221,726 litres. There is also a so-called "Kleines Fass".
Standing on Heidelberg Castle overlooking the entire Heidelberg Old Town and the University of Heidelberg, there is a sense of obsession. The green hills, the green waters of the Neckar River, the remains of the ancient vicissitudes of the old castle, and the old town with steep spires and deep stone paths are like a big picture. What is especially special is the old castle that has been destroyed. It is incomplete and not refined. It tells the story of the years in the broken wall, but it has also been comforted by time. It touches the hearts of the imperfections and still does not lose the wind of the king. It has also become one of the symbols of Heidelberg.
Heidelberg is located on the banks of the Neckar River. Here, the Neckar River flows from the narrow and steep Odenwald valley to the Rhine Valley and meets the Rhine River in Mannheim, 20 km northwest of Heidelberg. The famous Heidelberg Castle is situated on a hill 200 metres above sea level above the Neckar River, overlooking the narrow old town of Heidelberg. It may be that the viking is too comfortable, and it may be that the scenery in Heidelberg is so beautiful. Every day, it depends on the mountains and waters, so it is delicious.

At the entrance of the magnificent Schwetzingen Palace, no one could have imagined that there was a huge garden hidden inside. I finally saw the long-lost cherry blossom forest. The spring breeze blew, and the cherry blossoms rained. Unfortunately, the cherry petals were too small, and the camera could not capture the beauty of this time.
Schwetzingen Palace is not only beautiful in cherry blossoms, but also has a beautiful garden view. Many tourists came to visit, and finally found a secluded cherry forest. I always wanted to know that the cherry blossoms were not fragrant, and I went to smell it, only a faint scent.
Think about the residents around here, every year you can see the most beautiful cherry blossoms. Everyone knows that cherry blossoms bloom briefly and beautifully. For tourists, to see the cherry blossom rain, it depends entirely on the ingredients of luck. If I work every day or lunch break, I can enjoy this beautiful garden view. I dont want to work overtime for a long time. This is my longing for life.
